FSM Webinar: Understanding the 7 Life Domains as a Framework for Student Success

The 7 Life Domains provided by Casey Family Programs offer a useful framework to support students with experience in foster care. In this webinar, Jamie Bennett, MSW, Training Specialist for the Center for Fostering Success, will provide an overview of the 7 Life Domains, focusing on why and how we are orienting our work in Michigan around them. The 7 Life Domains framework allows professionals to use a holistic, integrated approach in working with students. This webinar will include examples for developing student support in the context of the life domains as well as practice recommendations for optimal support of students.
